Laurie is a composer, and co-founder/co-director of the Slip label.
His music works through pop cultural trauma, taking pleasure in ritual self-abasement. His projects are impure coagulations of instruction and improvisation; text, sound, image; lone wolf and mob; human and computer technologies. He primarily works with a tight group of long-standing collaborators.
Laurie has performed at London’s Café Oto, Bristol’s Spike Island, Aldeburgh Music, Aarhus’ Radar, Berlin’s Reflektor, and Harplinge’s Harp Art Lab.
His commissions have premiered with the House Of Bedlam, LSO Soundhub Scheme, ddmmyy and 840 series. He has been broadcast on Resonance FM and BBC Radio 3.
Forthcoming projects include mini-album Ample Profanity - the debut release of Laurie & Olly, a collaboration with cellist Oliver Coates; a debut US performance with Suze Whaites at National Sawdust, Brooklyn; and collaborations with visual artist Joel Wycherley, bassist Otto Willberg, and composer/producer Chaines.
